My heart still weeps and cries for the Land of
West Papua, for its independence and the pain
my brothers and sisters are going through right
now! Father God, please come to their aid and
hear our cries for deliverance!
In Jesus' name. Amen.
Today I asked my Papuan brother to translate 'Suffering
Papua', and here it is by Alpheus Meage.
Oh the land of West Papua, so beautiful and I
admired so sweet land. The shining of land likes
diamond. Oh the land of West Papua. Feeling
demoralize my tears fall down and feeling
brokenhearted. When will the end be to stop the
suffering? Oh the birds of Paradise, let your
wings fly and fly me away from this situation.
Because I don't want see my people cry anymore
in Papua. Oh Lord I lift up Papua into your hands.
